Appointment Information

Birth control refill pick ups are available: any time we are open.

Planned Parenthood is proud to offer same day prescription refills. If you have an existing prescription with us, you can call to request to refill your birth control before noon, and your prescription will be available for pick up after 2pm on the SAME DAY. Please call ahead to verify pick-up hours.

Please note that if you are using health insurance to cover the cost of your prescription, there may be restrictions on how many refills you can receive at one time.

At this health center you can come in for appointments that do not require a medical exam. For example, birth control education and supplies; emergency contraception (morning after pill); pregnancy testing and counseling; STD testing; testing and treatment for urinary tract infections.

We do not provide childcare services. We request that you please make childcare arrangements.

Children under the age of 1 are not allowed to wait unsupervised in the waiting area.
